Following the release of their thirteenth studio album, Titans of Creation, on April 3rd, Bay Area thrash legends Testament have announced they'll be hitting the road with The Black Dahlia Murder, Municipal Waste and Meshiaak for a near-month-long trek across North America.
The tour will commence in Phoenix, Arizona on April 20th and conclude in Anaheim, California on May 28th.
"I’m super excited about Testament’s tour with The Black Dahlia Murder and Municipal Waste," said guitarist Alex Skolnick. "As much as we’ve enjoyed touring with bands who emerged before us, from our own time period and slightly later eras, it will be a fresh experience to share the bill with these two, both of whom formed in the new Millennium, each with a unique perspective and a sound unlike anyone else. It’ll be a fun night of music. Don’t miss it!"
If Testament's new track "Night of the Witch" is any indication, Titans of Creation is sure to be a standout metal offering in 2020!
Virginia speed metal punks Municipal Waste are touring in support of their latest offering The Last Rager EP which was released on October 11th via Nuclear Blast.
The Black Dahlia Murder will be touring in support of their upcoming new full-length with details to be unveiled in the coming days.
"It is a massive honor and pleasure to be considered a worthy peer to the mighty Testament. Being a fan of theirs since childhood, I have to stop and pinch myself to see if it's a dream or not. Luckily, I'm still awake!," said The Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad of the tour. "To say that we in The Black Dahlia Murder are excited for this undertaking would be a massive understatement. Not to mention the added pleasure of combining forces with the non-stop energy of Municipal Waste. Too fucking sick! These three entities together will be leveling venues across North America and leaving no head un-banged! This is it! The stars have aligned! Prepare to fucking thrash!"
